Armenian Parliament terminated the powers of the lawmaker from "My  Step" Edgar Arakelyan

ArmInfo. The parliament of Armenia suspended the powers of the elected parliament lawmaker from the ruling "My Step" bloc Edgar Arakelyan. The Chairman of the  National Assembly of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan stated this at a  parliamentary meeting on Thursday.

To note, Arakelyan previously announced his intention to resign on  his Facebook page, in particular stating: <I have made the decision  to abandon the MP mandate due to the lack of certain qualities  necessary for politics, which makes me incompatible with this  activity. I specially emphasize once again that this personal  decision is not a demarche against the possible operation of the  Amulsar field or the possible ratification of the Istanbul Convention  or any other process" the publication reads. He emphasized that he  had withdrawn the mandate based on his own free will, without any  pressure, solely for personal reasons, which he might someday  announce.

"Taking as a basis the statement of the MP, and guided by the  requirement of paragraph 6 of Part 1 of Art.  154 of the  constitutional law on "NA Rules", from now on we consider the powers  of Edgar Arakelyan, elected by the national election list of <My  Step> bloc of parties to be terminated, Mirzoyan said, adding that  the corresponding protocol was sent to Tigran Mukuchyan, Chairman of  the Central Executive Committee of the Republic of Armenia.
